    \[\large z^2+(9+3i)z+(24-11i)=0\]\[\large z^2+(9+3i)z=-(24-11i)\]to complete squares, add (b/2)^2 to both sides, where b=9+3i \[\large z^2+(9+3i)z+\left( \frac{ 9+3i }{ 2 } \right)^2=-(24-11i)+\left( \frac{ 9+3i }{ 2 } \right)^2\]

    \[(z + (\frac{ 9 + 3i }{ 2 }))^2 = -24 + 11i + 18 +\frac{ 27i }{ 2 }\]

    \[z + (\frac{ 9+3i }{ 2 }) = \pm \sqrt{\frac{ -12 + 5i}{ 2 }} \]

    \[z = -(\frac{ 9+3i }{ 2}) \pm \sqrt{\frac{ -12 + 5i }{ 2 }}\]

    it would be so much easier if the square root wasnt there...we could just add them up easily

    from the yahoo answers link: z² + (2−4i)z = (11+10i) z² + (2−4i)z + (-3 -4i) = (11+10i) + (-3 -4i)

    what i dont get is where the (-3-4i) comes from
